DescriptionThe Kinks 1965 "All Day and All of the Night" British Concert Poster. A large, original U.K. concert poster advertising an "All-Night Ball" with 10 bands playing, headlined by the "Sensational T.V. Recording Stars, The Kinks." The Davies brothers were as hot as can be at the time, with "You Really Got Me" and "All Day and All of the Night" having already reached #1 and #2 in the U.K. respectively, and "Tired of Waiting for You," another #1 smash, set for release a week after this concert. Measures 20" x 30" and grades to Very Good Plus condition. COA from Heritage Auctions.
More Information: A highly unusual rock-concert poster for a gig that ran all night, literally advertised as ending at 6:30 AM. "Ten and a half hours," it says more than once. "Ten Great Beat Groups." Lots of fun wording and detail on this four-color poster (white, red, yellow, black), plus a cool picture of the Kinks.
Condition details: The poster has a few horizontal creases from perhaps being rolled up awkwardly at times, but they're very light. The poster's top edge took the brunt of any dinging while rolled, and shows some moderate creasing. It also had the only exposure to light so there's some very faint browning along the top edge. Otherwise this poster is remarkably free of toning, remaining a comparatively bright white. Small amount of edge crumpling on the left edge near the top. Otherwise just some small surface creases here & there, but none we saw that do any visual damage at all.
